Things that make me happy this time of year

How cats can be so funny and so human in a smug sort of way
Fresh tomatoes from my garden-store bought is another animal altogether...yuck Scarecrows and scarecrow wallhangings

Angel wallhangings in autumn colors

The last of my garden before it goes to sleep for the winter

The beauty of the harvest and the color of God's paintbrush

The smell outdoors as the temperature drops and you smell a cool breeze, pine needles, leaves, smoke and Autumn-it smells beautiful and fills me with thankfulness

Is there anything more wonderful than the variety of pumpkins when they are all together begging to be made into happy jacko'lanterns. I can't wait to make some. I am on my way to Jackson Hole, Wyoming for the Quilting In the Tetons conference and then, I go to Market for the last two days to sign my brand spanking new book. I cannot wait to get my hands on a copy.

Happy Autumn Everyone! Count Your Many Blessings this Fall. Even if you are in another country and it is Spring!

You have too many cute things. Love your scarecrows.

Crisp Autumn blue skies, the changing of the leaves, pumpkins, ornamental corns, squashes of all types. Crows flying in the early dawn and dusk skies.

Beautiful colours of asters, crysanthemums,and other fall flowers.

I love this time of year as the world goes to sleep until Spring.

Those are definitely happy things:)
I am finishing up some pieces to send to lynette for the fall market. If you get a chance, say hi and check out the new crows book and punched pieces that I did for her. She will be in booth 1527.

Have fun on your trip.
